Halo 4 has dropped to 3rd in the weekly xbox live activity during the week of december 31.Cod BO 2 is still number one while minecraft 360 is number 2.This does not mean that halo 4 is doomed or is crap compared to the other two games.

It isn't. Halo 4 is crap. Minecraft is not. Lemmings just have great taste.

Some parts of the halo fanbase are obsessed with population numbers.

I believe machinima said it was beating cod as well online... i played two hours tonight and pretty much cant stop. Every single kid at my school i teach at plays. Its a gaming phenominom. Like an evolution of tetris or something... yes I mean that, and I cant believe I am because I only downloaded it for my kids.

I'm surprised Halo 4 made number 3, it wasn't that good, wasn't bad but wasn't great either.

Well, remember too that Halo 4 was 343's first real solo game.

I'm sure we are in for a bigger Halo experience on their sophmore effort.

I agree... wasnt expecting the "left 4 dead" style characters either... makes hunting down pirates even more fun. Also, the little objectives that keep u working together just tightens the fun.

Quality time, ey ? :P

I just don't have the patience to build something, I would start on some super ambitious construction, only to quit 20 minutes later cause I got bored.

Well Minecraft, BLOPS2, and Halo are all huge franchises. The FPS community is split between BLOPS2 and Halo 4 whereas Minecraft attracts that audience as well as others whom aren't necessarily interested in FPS.

I played the Demo for Minecraft 360 version.

iPod version is 10x better.

Maybe this will teach 343 to stop appealing to the COD crowd.

I wish they would remove the ordinance drops in some of the most played modes or make it so people don't get ridiculously powerful weapons that are not present on the maps.

When MS decided to drop core in 2009 to go casaul, who would of thought that the mighty Halo franchise would of been taken out by a casual game. Real shame.

I think everyone on here should stop hyping games. Before Halo 4 launched, almost everyone here said it was going to be amazing, great, the best thing ever, etc.

Post-launch....."Oh it's not great. Hope this shows 343!". Only like 5% of the games hyped ever stay positively viewed on here.

I just started playing Halo 4 online recently and it's fun. A bit easy though. I think my K/D is like a 2.6 - 3.0 on it.

Minecraft is simply a bigger phenomon. It doesn't mean Halo 4 is crap in the least bit, especially if its at #3. Most other games would kill to get that high.

Speaking of other games, why the hell is Borderlands 2 that low? :x

I was obssesed with Minecraft wen it was in Alpha, there's nothing like being thrown into a world in which you need to build yourself a shelter fast, otherwise horrible monsters will come and kill you wen it's night.

Minecraft sold 450,000 copies on XBL on Christmas day alone! I thought it would overtake both Halo and CoD, so I'm surprised to see it only overtook Halo.

I haven't had the chance to play Halo 4 since Christmas day actually :( That game is so good! My friend (who I play Halo with) told me I could have his old Xbox, and a copy of Halo 4 as a gift, and I turned it down because the gift was just too nice, but I've been wanting to play more Halo 4 so I kinda regret it :P

I really am liking Farcry 3, even the MP element of it. I'll get a lot of play out of it and certainly more than Halo4.

I've played only like two hours of FC3, so don't really have an opinion on it. Halo 4 was just too disappointing.

i liked it at first, the noise in makes in the menu or map sucks though. its bugging me how everyone is loved up over a game which plays essentially the same as farcry 2 which everyone except me hated. i got bored of far cry 3 after about 20 hours, i'll no doubt pick it up again in the summer to finish it off.

I wish they'd release a "Halo 3 map pack" :(

But I agree I find myself playing the same maps a bit too often.

I think it's immensely better than FC2, especially the travel aspect of it.
